Of all the resolutions you might consider to start 2022, getting a free water quality analysis for your home might not be one that immediately pops up into your thoughts. But given water is that one thing we can’t live without, we probably shouldn’t take it for granted. After all, it’s critical to our own health, the functioning of many of our appliances, and cleaning everything around us – our dishes, our clothes and our bodies. Wouldn’t you want your water to be of the highest quality? Here are five reasons to schedule your water quality analysis with us today.
Reason no. 1: You’ll learn what contaminants are in your water once and for all.
About 43 percent of all Americans don’t drink enough water. Many of those don’t do so because they’re not confident in the water that either comes out of their tap or what they buy from bottles in a store. Indeed, in the Chicago area, a number of contaminants have been discovered in the water supply including significant amounts of:
- Coliforms (E.coli) and Other Bacteria
- Disinfectants and Disinfectant By-Products
- PFAS Chemicals
- And More
Even small amounts of these contaminants are known to cause everything from cancer to kidney failure to, in the case of lead, brain damage. Knowing what contaminants are in your water can help you make the best decisions on getting you water properly treated.
Reason no. 2: You’ll learn how hard your water is.
Hard water remains a big problem in the Midwest and Chicago, in particular. With its deposits of calcium and magnesium, hard water can stain sinks and drains, clog pipes, cause your appliances to use more energy, and even damage your skin and hair. Recent studies have suggested that Chicago-area water averages about 8 grains per gallon (gpg), which is considered “hard.” Our free water quality analysis will be able to reveal exactly how hard your water is, and, in the process, let you know what it could currently be doing to negatively impact your pipes, appliances and the softness of your hair and skin.
Reason no. 3: You’ll get the results quickly.
Reason no. 4: You’ll get recommend options for water treatment.
Once we do the test, our on-site expert can provide you recommendations for either a filtration system or a softening solution depending on the current water quality. Or, he or she may recommend a dual system. For filtration, we use a reliable reverse osmosis system that can remove all of the known contaminants above from your water. For hard water, we provide a water softener that will remove the calcium and magnesium, which will also mean better-tasting water for your home.
Reason no. 5: It’s free. And there’s no obligation.
When we send a technician to your home to test your water for free, that means there’s no obligation that you need to buy one of our solutions. We understand that you might need to think on it a bit more after getting the results. After all, our mission at Restore Water Solutions is better water for everyone. We’re confident that our solutions can help you enjoy healthier and cleaner water – both to drink and use on a daily basis. We’re also happy, though, that you can first learn more about what’s in your water so you can make the best decision.
